60 years ago, a young woman was left to die in the abandoned school building behind the exclusive Seikyou Academy. No one knows why. No one knows how. But the horrifying tale and the legends of the ghostly haunting that followed live on to this day. Perhaps it's not so surprising then, that among Seikyou's many school clubs is one for students interested in "paranormal investigations." What might raise more than a few hairs, however, is that the founder of the club is the ghost herself. Unable to remember how she died and trapped in the grey land between life and death, Yuuko latches onto Teiichi Niiya, a freshman who can inexplicably see her, and together they and the other unsuspecting members of the club begin to unravel the many dark mysteries that surround Seikyou. Will unlocking the secret of Yuuko's gruesome death finally free her? Or will her sudden close association with a mortal have even stranger repercussions on both of their existences?
Another series with an interesting premise. This time instead of a kawaii zombie we have one hot ghost but still.....they're both dead T_T. To tell you the truth I'm not expecting much from the story since it only revolves around finding clues on why and how Yuuko died. Four episodes in, the story isn't moving at all since so far all the characters did is to get involve in various school mysteries that involves our ghost but instead of acquiring clues all they got were just explanation why that mystery happened (though the explanation/reasons are really hilarious because it is mostly due to our ghost's pranks). Maybe the first few eps are just for build up and meeting new characters but its only a 12 ep anime so I think they shouldn't be wasting any time. Hmmmm maybe I watched this show with a different expectation (I expected a serious horror anime with romance but it was really a comedy...how the hell did I miss that? ) that's why I have those rants but when I've set my expectations in the right path, I'll say that this show is doing great since with every episodes I watch, it never failed to make me laugh (imagine trying to stifle my laugh at 3am in the morning so that I won't wake up people sleeping wwww). I watched this in a dark room expecting to get scared and it did scare me...scared me that I'll get scolded for waking up my parents wwww. This show’s take on why people see ghost differently and why some people can’t see ghosts is very interesting. So far this show have been very successful un entertaining me but I want the show to get back on the plot. Sure I’m enjoying it but what matter to me most is the plot and it’s a pity since as the series progress, the focus have been more on the light hearted mysteries and character build up than getting back on track with the plot.
**I’ll be taking a break with writing first impressions next week but instead I’ll be posting a review and I’m choosing between Ano Natsu and Rinne no Lagrange. Oh and vote for me in the Aniblogtourney the polls are still open. Thanks!
